The flag of Vinica, adopted in December 2007 and designed by Blagoj Gavrilov, is presented on the municipal bulletin, February 2008.
The flag is horizontally divided blue-red with, in the middle, the representation of a broken terracotta icon surmonted by the walls of Viničko Kale, the archeological site where the icons were found. Blue symbolizes water while red symbolizes life.
